Political Science

UCL’s Department of Political Science is recognised as a centre of excellence, as confirmed by the results of the 2014 REF. The department ranked 5th on Times Higher GPA and 2nd on the Times Higher Subject Ranking on Intensity, the Guardian subject ranking, and other measures.

In addition to teaching and research, the department acts as the bridge between UCL's world-class research and the policy-making community in Britain and internationally. We have weekly seminars featuring distinguished external speakers and hold regular high profile events for policy-makers that students may attend.
